After a decade away, Greer Bell is returning to Loveless County, hoping for a reconciliation with her family — one that includes their acceptance of her nine-year-old daughter, Shelby. Thanks to the local land-grant program, Greer's also the new owner of a dilapidated property she's turning into a guest ranch. She's risking her financial future on it.
But she's risking far more than that on Noah Kelley, the man who wants to marry her despite the town's disapproval and all her efforts to discourage him. Shelby, however, is definitely in favor of having Noah as her dad — and sometimes kids know best.
